Next Renault Clio to have iPad-style tablet

Previously only seen on luxury cars, the tablet will include a seven-inch touch screen display capable of controlling music, satellite navigation and even social media in the car.

The tablet will also be capable of understanding voice commands and can be removed and used on its own, just like an iPad or similar tablet device.

This tablet, called an R-Link system, also allows drivers to connect with automotive services and applications in an AppStore.

The technology will appear in the next generation Renault Clio, the small hatchback which has been on sale in various generations for over 20 years in the UK.

A new Renault Clio is currently being planned complete with new Renault styling and cleaner, greener engines.

However, technology is also a major focus in the new Renault and the R-Link system is the first confirmed technology for the new Renault Clio.

Renault claims this new technological tablet will have 50 available applications, which includes functions like sat nav, of which is being provided by TomTom.

Renault is also in the process of looking for more developers to help with the new tablet, which would mean more available applications.

The Renault Clio is one of the French manufacturer’s longest running models and has earned its renowned reputation in the supermini segment.

The new 2012 Renault Clio is expected to have many new features but most impressive is its new Expression Eco 1.5-litre dCi diesel engine. This new engine delivers great CO2 emissions of just 94g/km and mileage of 78.4mpg. This new engine also delivers 88hp and a top speed of 113mph.

With these low emissions and high mileage the new Clio will pose big competition to the 2012 supermini segment. It may also prove a worthy competitor in the electric car (EV) market.

The new Renault Clio is out in 2012. Renault vehicles are available from Perry’s Aylesbury dealership.
